Unlike many of the non-surgical body contouring solutions that use heat to eliminate unwanted fat, CoolSculpting freezes fat. Yes it freezes fat, so there is no need for a needle or a knife. CoolSculpting uses a process known as Cyrolipolysis to get rid of resistant fat, but what is the most effective area to use Coolsculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that banishes stubborn fat. During the procedure, intense cold is applied at temperatures that freeze the fat cells. This takes place without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue (learn more).
The fat cells eventually die, and are then passed from the body. After treatment, the area will be tender and there may be some stinging and stiffness.However, most patients can return to daily activities without any need for downtime.
Effective areas for CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting works well on regions of the body where there areisolated pockets of fat. This includes areas such as the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, back,and love handles. However, it is not recommended for people that have large amounts of fat to remove. After one CoolSculpting session, patients may experience up to 25% reduction in fat in the treated area. Optimal results can take up to 2-3 months to show.
In order to maintain the results gained with CoolSculpting, patients are advised to eat a healthy diet, and engage in regular exercise. It’s important to remember that if you gain weight, the fat cells that are left behind will get larger.
